Aurora Wings Showcase

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is here finally. This has been a long week. I think that I am anticipating spring is going to be around the corner, but it’s not quite here in Oklahoma.

We have a new showcase for you at the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog. For this posting, Mitzi Sato-Wiuff, artist and owner of Aurora Wings, has designed two brand new images for the Showcase Designers to create with.

The first one that I am showcasing is Edamame Sprite. Mitzi’s little sprites are some of my favorite images to color and use in projects.

The very first thing that I did was color Edamame Sprite with Copics. I have started making my background a little different. I do some streaking with a couple of colors and then come back with dabbed alcohol to make the splotches. I am still learning this technique from an online video that I watch all the time.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20;
Sprite: G20, 21, 24, 28, 29, and
B32, 34, 37;
Baby Peas: G20, 21, 24, R20;
Background: W5, B32, 34, alcohol.

Products used to complete Edamame Sprite:
Pearls from my stash;
The following supplies are all from Fun Stampers Journey:
New Day designer paper;
Cardstock in Limeade Splash and Catalina Splash;
True Color Fusion Ink in Catalina Splash;

Our next cutie is a new addition to Mitzi’s mer-boys and mer-girls line. Meet Little Pirate. He was a joy to color with Copics and adding accents with glitter pens. This is also going to be a baby shower card that goes to my soon-to-be GREAT grandson. Yep, you heard right, I did say GREAT. LOL

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, purple glitter pen;
Hair: V01, 04, 09
Lower Body, Scales, and Tail:
W1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and
V000, 01, 04, 06, 09;
Treasure Chest: E13, 15, 19, 21, 23;
Hat and Treasure Chest Bands:
C1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 100;
Swards and Lock: Y11, 15, 19, E43;
Background: V01, BG11, alcohol.

Products used to complete Little Pirate:
Spellbinder’s A2 Matting Basics A;
Dew Drops from my stash;
The following supplies are all from Fun Stampers Journey:
